I’m always on the lookout for products that help oily skin. One thing that’s very important to me is my facial cleanser. At the end of the day, I want to feel that my makeup is completely off my face. I love facial scrubs
for that purpose. They make my face feel clean and soft, and they do a great job at removing makeup and dead skin cells. The main reason I decided to try St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub, which is the scrub I use right now, was because of the price. It’s very inexpensive compared to other facial scrubs. It only cost me about $3.50 at my local superstore. However, just because its price is cheap, its quality isn’t.
St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub is specifically formulated for skin that’s prone to breakouts. I wouldn’t suggest using it on severe acne, as it may inflame the acne more and cause the face to be sensitive and sore. It’s great for preventing breakouts, however. It also works great at controlling oily skin. I have combination skin, parts of it are extremely oily and other parts are dry. It works great on combination skin, because it controls the oily spots and doesn’t make the dry spots any drier.
St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub has 100% natural exfoliants that work hard to slough off dry, dead skin cells. What it leaves behind is soft, glowing skin that looks beautiful. I love the way my face feels after I use the St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub. I can touch it and not feel any greasiness or roughness. I just have a few tips for those that decide to try St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub. First, don’t get it in your eyes! This has happened to me quite a few times, and it really hurts. Second, don’t use it when you have a sunburn. This scrub is rather abrasive, and it has medication in it. So, if you have a sunburn and you irritate the already sensitive skin, you’re going to be left with a big mess. My last piece of advice is to not overdo it. Even though it works great, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Scrubbing your face too much will over stimulate your oil glands, and your face will be oilier than it was before. This defeats the purpose of using the scrub. You want to have flawless looking skin, not skin that’s oilier and more prone to breakouts.
St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub is a great facial cleanser. It’s inexpensive and leaves your skin looking great. St. Ives also has different kinds of facial scrubs that don’t contain medication, so you can find the one that’s perfect for your skin type. I would definitely recommend the St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub to anyone that wants to experience clean, fresh skin.
